Dandelion House has a NEW LOOK!

Happy Spring friends!

In honor of Springs arrival, I decided to give Dandelion House a complete makeover! I've had a vision of what I wanted for some time now that I couldn't seem to attain with my limited computer knowledge and even more limited graphic design skills. I knew I wanted these pages to radiate warmth and good cheer ( in my favorite color pallet) with a touch of whimsy just for fun!  As much as I love fiddling around with different backgrounds and header photos I really want to spend my time creating enriching content to inspire you. With that in mind, I knew there was only one person who could help me. Karen Valentine of Valentine Design.

She's getting to be quite the household name in blog land. She authors the charming and popular home and garden blog My Desert Cottage . She also hosted the brilliant first and second annual Where Bloggers Create parties as well as being featured in Where Women Create and Summerset Studio magazines. But that's not all... She's been asked to speak at this years Creative Connection. She builds beautiful blogs from her online web business Valentine Design and if that weren't enough she has just launched her new book Building Beautiful Blogs for the beginner blogger ( and anyone else who still thinks they could learn more about blogger) .

I'll admit, the artist in me was hesitant, even a bit anxious to relinquish " creative control " over my blog design but I'm so glad I did.  Karen was wonderful to work with, reasonably priced and professional.

In her words, " You DESERVE a beautiful blog " .

I couldn't agree more ! LOVE my new look and I hope you do too!

Beautiful new look. I too was like you and didn't want to hand control over to anyone else, but was glad when I finally did. So I understand your hesitation!
